Ukrainian diaspora to support Ukraine's European integration

The Ukrainian community welcomes the joint declaration by the participants of the Eastern Partnership summit and promises to support Ukraine on its EU integration road.

This was stated by President of the Ukrainian World Congress (UWC) Eugene Czolij, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"The Ukrainian World Congress supports the above statements of the Joint Declaration of the Eastern Partnership Summit, as well as the related recommendation by the European Parliament, and continues to support Ukraine in its process of European integration and reforms, as well as in combatting Russian hybrid aggression against Ukraine," Czolij said.

He recalled that the joint declaration by the participants of the Eastern Partnership Summit, which was adopted in Brussels on November 24, 2017, acknowledges the European aspirations and European choice of the EaP partners, and expressed hopes for strengthening cooperation and further progress in the field of mobility.

"The UWC also supports a recommendation voted on November 15, 2017 by the European Parliament (EP) calling on the EU to reiterate that the AAs with Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine do not constitute the final goal in their relations with the EU, as well as pointing out that, pursuant to Article 49 of the Treaty on European Union and in line with the Rome Declaration of March 25, 2017, any European state may apply to become a member of the EU, provided it adheres to the Copenhagen criteria and the principles of democracy, that it respects fundamental freedoms and human rights including those of minority groups and that it upholds the rule of law," the UWC added.
